Who doesn’t enjoy a fun train journey. Going through the countryside while you sit back and take in the views beats driving any day of the week. What’s not to like about having no risk of traffic or concentrating hard on what other drivers close to you are doing while enjoying a beer or wine with your meal onboard? If you’d like to learn about Europe’s own connected train system, Eurostar, you’ve come to the right place. Read on to learn more!

What Are the Main Eurostar Routes?

The great capital cities of Paris, London, Brussels, and Amsterdam are the main Eurostar destinations, with trains running seven days a week, every day except for Christmas. They run from St. Pancras International, Gare du Nord, Brussels Midi, and Amsterdam Central stations, respectively. Depending on the season and service, other main stops include Lille, Calais, Lyon, Marseille, Avignon, Marne-la-Vallee, and Rotterdam.

Are There Any Other UK Eurostar Stations?

The Eurostar also goes from Ashford International and Ebbsfleet International in Kent. Not all the services stop here but there are car parks if you wish to drive or avoid Central London.

How Far in Advance Should I Book My Eurostar Tickets?

The good news is, that compared with a lot of other train companies, you can book a Eurostar ticket 180 days in advance, with cheap tickets being released at times throughout the year at sporadic moments.

How Can I Get My Ticket?

You have to print out your Eurostar ticket. So the easiest method is just to print your ticket at home. If you don’t have a printer, you can collect your ticket at the Eurostar station using the collection reference in your booking confirmation. If you’ve booked a series of connections to or from your Eurostar destinations, it’s always best to print them out at your house. Eurostar machines do not cater to all onward tickets.

Do You Need a Passport?

In order to use the Eurostar trains you will need a passport. A smart thing to consider is an ePassport since they allow you to directly go through the electronic gates, which are much quicker.
